UVU Wants YOU!

...but only for a couple of hours.

Here's the story: Starting in March, from 11:00-1:00 pm on every Thursday Cedar Fort will be hosting signings at Utah Valley University in their bookstore. This is great way for your book to gain exposure among a college crowd!

The books they are looking for are:

National Fiction/Non-Fiction
Juvenile Fiction (targeting elementary school students)
Children's Picture Books

If your book falls in this category and you live in where you can do a lunch-time signing at UVU, please leave your requested dates for signing in the comments section. In this case, all authors will be considered on a first come, first served basis, with UVU ultimately choosing the authors they fill to be good fits.

So, to repeat, make sure your title fits with those UVU is requesting, find dates that will work for you in the next several months and post them in the comment section. When something is firmly scheduled I will email you in addition to posting your signing in the comment section so other authors can see what days are taken.

Remember, all your signings should be publicized on your personal website so that fans know you'll be there. Also, remember to invite FB friends and others a minimum of 3 times with your status updates or by creating an event.

Are you ready?

On your mark, get set, go!


  1. I'm good for just about every Thursday at that time, I would just have to rearrange only one student whenever I do go. Since I also teach there, I've been wanting to get a signing there anyway.

  2. Cool! This is exciting. I'd be interested in March 18th or 25th.

  3. If the signings go into April, I would love to sign "Where the Sun Rises" on Mar 11, April 1, 8, or 15. I teach at Weber State and would take any opportunity to meet students. "Where the Sun Rises" is national fiction and links to student studies in sociology and psychology, including topics like addiction recovery, mentoring, and competency building.

  4. I could do it march 11th, 18th, or 25th. I live about a mile from UVU

  5. As a note, could all authors include the name of their books in their post? That would be great!

    Berin Stephens- The Dragon War Relic
    Rachelle Christensen- Wrong Number & Coping with Miscarriage
    Joe Evans- Encompassing Charity

  6. I would love to do this. March 4th would be best, but March 11th would also work. My book is "The Canticle Kingdom." Thanks!

  7. For those of you patiently waiting, know that scheduling will begin this week. UVU had a lot going on these past few weeks and is just getting back to business as usual :)

  8. Okay, first signings are set up as follows:

    3/23- Michael Young 11:30-1:00 pm
    3/25- Berin Stephens 11:30-1:00 pm
    4/7- David Ridges 11:30-1:00 pm
    4/21- Rachelle Christensen 11:30-1:00 pm
